- there was a guest list.
- the ladies were all wearing heels.
- lots of waiters in black.
- there was an MC and speeches.
- it reeked of pretension
- I was a +1. Haha.
It was a mixed bag. Some of the artworks were plain silly (see the rainbow-coloured rugby balls and the basin below). Some were mediocre. Some were really cool. My favourites were the two works by Skullboy because they were fun, awkward and at times slightly sad as well. They felt human, whereas most of the other works felt more like they were created to get into the exhibit, not to express a particular emotion. I guess, like everywhere else, there is a lot of bullshitting that goes on in art.
From here onwards, it is just individual parts of Skullboy's You & Me piece.
